Masada (Lp)

Label: Holywax Records

Format: LP

Genre: Library/Soundtracks

In stock


Holywax’s treasure trove side imprint returns with this incredible mindbender from the archives, the mighty Masada by maestro Graziano Mandozzi. This musical masterpiece has been written for the soundtrack of the Hans Kresnik Ballet with the same name in 1977. Expect experimental sounds, weird synths jams, twisted electronic jazz and banging psych funk throughout the album, creating a seamlessly segued side of ghostly, decaying acoustic sounds captured within the stone-clad building's numerous corridors, lifts, studios and stairwells. As you'd imagine, the effect is immensely evocative, at once recalling Daphne Oram's experiments, while acknowledging the structural aesthetics of sound sculptors like Egisto Macchi or Bruno Spoerri. The LP sounds superb as it has been mastered and cut by Miles Showell at the Abbey Road Studio in London! We decided to keep the design as close as possible to the original issue with gatefold cover, original 4 pages insert and a new additional insert with liner note, tracklist and credits.
